Florida Scrub-Jay

Inspired by… the resilience of the Florida Scrub-Jay, an endangered species whose habitat in central Florida is quickly shrinking.

The Florida Scrub-Jay is the only species of bird that is endemic to Florida. A friend, an avid bird watcher, took us to the central Florida Lyonia Preserve to see the bird habitat. The birds are friendly and sometimes will get very close to hikers.
